It was certainly not my intention to make light of what happened in
WWII, or the Jewish people. Rather, I was trying to point out that
psychotic madmen don't get their insane ideas from popular media, but
rather from their own psychosis. In fact there is nothing funny about
the German Holocaust, the Spanish Inquisition, the Crusades, the
Killing Fields of Cambodia, or the slaughter of their American
Indians. Millions of people were needlessly put to death in all of
these tragedies, as well as Stalin's purges, and the mascaras of Mao
Tse Tung.

I do, however, think it is funny that in the face of these
atrocities, people think that our modern society has become too
violent due to TV and video games! I mean a few kids blowing away
their classmates because they are unbalanced, is certainly awful, but
it is not like a feudal lord putting an entire town to death because
someone forgot to wash his horse properly.
